So, if you chose to submit a creative project for your Final assignment, in either essay or point form, list the full set of criteria by which your project can be gauged to have failed. To wit,
- if the project does not advance an academic thesis
- if the project does not identifiably incorporate material from relevent scholarship
- if the project fails to relate directly to some number of the primary course texts
- if the project fails to represent and demonstrate advanced understanding of the central ideas of the course
- &c, &c.
The creative project must be accompanied by a concise scholarly essay justifying the academic validity of the project.
